Shipley-to-Shore Trail in Huntington Beach

Read story by Chris MacDonald

The Shipley-to-Shore Trail is taking shape in Huntington Beach thanks to the efforts of the HB Tree Society, the city and hard-working volunteers, who gather each Thursday, Friday and Saturday to make it a reality.

The proposed¬†3-mile hiking, biking and horse trail eventually will proceed from HB’s Central Park, through Orange County parkland to Pacific Coast Highway and the beach/ocean.

“It’s truly a way we can connect the heart of our community with our magnificent ocean,” said Barbara Delgleize,¬†HB City Councilperson.

“Because of so many volunteers–people and groups–the likelihood of seeing the trail fantasy become reality is greater than ever–inch by inch, parcel by parcel,” said HB City Councilperson Patrick Brenden. “Some of it is on land that used to be Encyclopedia Lots–land that had been given away with the purchase of a set of encyclopedias.”

“Shipley-to-Shore is a fantastic idea, whose time has come,” said HB Planning Commissioner Michael Grant. “With the recent passage of Proposition 68 Park Bond, this is something that could be completed in a reasonable amount of time.”
